An interview with Greg Mann - Jeweller. "As a student of the arts, I was attracted to working with textural details, ending with a Fine Art degree in Gold and Silver smithing. My development towards a professional career has often been a process of making the common place more precious.
My inspirations involve an environmental awareness believing in the need to recycle - and upcycle discarded things to create more desirable objects.
A continual process of collection, collation and planning is a result of responses to the items found. The studio has an inevitable stream of new works produced and an ever broadening range of collections in the works.
Holding market stalls offers me an interface with the public that helps my business in many ways. Not only do I gauge reactions to my work, but also the exposures to increase my networks."
